Show Transcript

You’re listening to The Business of Life podcast. Practical advice for creating the life you love to live. Here’s your host, Keith Callahan.

KC: Alright, welcome to The Business of Life Episode number 12. Keith here and I am just excited to be with you, excited to be teaching and it’s been a few weeks since I’ve been on the mic recording, so excited to be back on the mic. I’ve been travelling for the last 3 weeks and it’s good to be back home, good to be in the home office and back in routine. So, today we’re going to be talking about good beginnings and good endings and such an important concept and, yeah, looking forward to sharing with you how it’s really affected my life.

[00:49]

Before we get into that though, I just want to share with you what I’m doing with this recording. So, in all the previous episodes, I’ve recorded with QuickTime player and for the techie people out there, you guys are probably cringing right now. So, QuickTime player has a record and stop record button which I love. You know, I don’t do the editing of these shows so I just record it and then send it over to Mike Hetman. Mike does most of the mixing of the podcast so when you get to listen it sounds great and beautiful. It’s over, if you’re curious, if you go to interpow.com, you can check him out. But yeah, so I usually send it over to Mike. So, we’re using GarageBand today and GarageBand has all these buttons on and all these confusing stuff, all those overwhelming stuff to a non-techie like me. I need a pause and a record button but the QuickTime player didn’t even have that. All it had was a record and stop record button so you didn’t have the ability to pause. So, I would be clearing my throat or I would have to stop for a second and just recollect my thoughts. Now, you know, that’s sort of the behind the scenes stuff on how the podcast gets recorded and while I was doing all that, Mike had to sit there and wait for me to come back on. So, Mike, hopefully this is going to be easier for you because I now have the ability to pause and then start recording again. So, anyways, rambling on there, just telling you what’s going on behind the scenes. But, let’s dive into it.

[02:28]

Let’s dive into good beginnings and good endings and what do I mean by this? So, I believe and I believe this not through theory, it’s through practical use in my own life that if we focus on good beginnings and focus on good endings then the in between is going to take care of itself. So, what do I mean by good beginnings and good endings? So, this is something that you can apply to anything in life and it can be for a year.

[03:05]

So, start off the year and end the year well. It can be for a day, start off the day and end the day well. It can be for an event. It can be for something that you’re doing. It can be for a relationship. So, let me just give you a few examples. We were just down in Nashville. I work with, as many of you know, part of our income, the majority of our income is through Beachbody and we were just down in Nashville for a convention called Summit. Summit’s like the big convention they have. And, this is just this massive, massive convention and just giving you an idea, from corporate standpoint they’re putting together this huge event, right, and they can focus on starting things off right and then ending things right.

[03:55]

And, what do we mean by starting things off right? So, kicking off the event, getting the energy started, getting everybody focused and getting everybody’s mindset in the right place for the entire event and then at the end of it giving clear actionable direction. So, when you’re running an event, if you focus on the beginning and the ending and then you have to do the content throughout it. The middle part takes care of itself if you have good beginnings and good endings. So, we’ve got this big 4-day long event, right? But then, there’s also these little sub events inside of it. So, we have different speakers and if the speaker, you know, say you’re out there speaking, if you focus on starting off with a good beginning and then starting off with a good ending, right. So, you can look at this from events or speaking or different things that you’re doing in your life.

[04:50]

Now, move away from that example that I was just giving with Beachbody and Summit, moving to you’re at your desk and you have a project to do.  What I would recommend is putting it into timeslots, maybe it’s an hour, maybe it’s 2 hours. For me, like 2 hours is the max I can work. But, in that 2 hours, I’m going to have a good beginning and a good ending. So, the good beginning is maybe I put a timer out and I know that I have 2 hours. Maybe I make a very clear list or a step by step outline of what I’m going to focus on in that 2 hours. So, you can see how having that piece lined up is going to really set you up to fill that 2 hours in with productive time and then at the end of that, going back reviewing what it was that you just did and putting the correct closure to it. So, maybe the correct closure is setting another task, planning something else out, maybe the correct closure is, you know, whatever it may be but good beginnings, good endings in little slots within your days.

[06:06]

And, even in relationships, like, if I have to have a conversation with someone and maybe it’s a difficult conversation. Maybe it’s a conversation that you have to talk with one of your children or talk to someone that you’re working with and you’re trying to work through something and if we started by just focusing on being heart-centered and coming at the situation from this is how I feel, this is what’s going on. When we do something like that, when we start out with the right intent, the intent to result, the intent to understand, the intent to really come to a mutual agreement with something, like that’s the beginning intent, that’s how we come into it and what that does is that it lets the other person’s guard down. It helps you to stay out of anger, fear, judgment, resentment, pointing the finger, guilt, whatever those things may be because we come into it with the right intent. Then, we go through, we have our conversation and then in the end we end with that same intent. Did we get closure? Did we get agreement? Did we say ‘I love you’? And, did we mean it and feel it. So, I wanted to give those few examples but what I really, really want to dive into is good beginnings and good endings in your day.

[07:31]

And, I’m going to break this down into the 2 parts of the beginning and then the 2 parts of the ending. So, let’s dive right into the beginning. But, before we do I want to let you know, we’re going to put together a quick little overview of this stuff I’m going to talk about and if you want to have that overview sent to you, you can do so at any time. Just send a text message to 38470 and type in the word GOOD within the body of that message. So again, 38470 and type in the word GOOD or you can always go to the website, KeithCallahan.com and for all the notes and everything on this episode, it’s going to be /episode12, so KeithCallahan.com/episode12.

[08:27]

Let’s dive right into it. This is the meat and potatoes of this episode. So, you have a little bit of an idea about good beginnings and good endings and I personally think that if I can focus my days on having good beginnings and good endings, then the rest of it’s sort of going to take care of itself, right? And, for the beginning, I really break it into 2 pieces. I break it into the getting up or the rising first thing in the morning, right, and then the second piece is what I call the power hour. And, you know, what I’m going to share with you, I’m going to share a bunch of stuff that I strive to do on a daily basis. So, let’s be real like some of this stuff does not happen every day. Some of this stuff slips. Some of this stuff doesn’t come to fruition every single day. But, over the last 10 years, I’ve gotten better and better and more disciplined. So, don’t get overwhelmed when you hear all this like it’s going to be a lot. My morning routine has a lot of stuff built into it but it’s also something that I’ve been working on for 10 years now. And, there’s also a power that comes with that.

[09:43]

So, anyways, I’m going to give you the big picture, what I’m doing, what I focus on right now and you can take as much that you want to implement, take as little that you want to implement. What I would suggest is if you do decide to implement any of this, make it manageable. Make it something that you’re going to consistently do because with good beginnings and good endings, the most important thing is consistency. It’s not having this massive glorious good beginning to a day and massive glorious good ending to a day one time and then not continuing it, right? So, let’s get into the details of it.

[10:26]

So, getting up, here’s one thing. So, when you’re rising in the morning, one of the things that I do is I keep a 16 to like 30 ounce glass of water next to my bed and the reason I do that is because when I wake up in the morning, the first thing that I want to do is I want to get myself hydrated so I chug that glass of water. And, you know, that’s really simple, right? So, you kind of have to start at night because you have to have that glass of water there ready for you but keep that glass of water right next to your bed and when you wake up in the morning, the first thing, take that glass of water and drink it down. Sort of quick little side note here, if you check out the books of Darin Olien, has a book called Superlife. Check that out. It’s got some awesome stuff in there. He also, he talks a lot about water, the importance of water and importance of hydrating. So, I just wanted to throw that out there but first thing in the morning, chug down your water.

[11:27]

And, here’s the thing that I learned, there’s another book that I implemented a lot of these morning rituals from, it’s called Ki in Daily Life. So, it’s just Ki in Daily Life and the author is Koichi Tohei, K-o-i-c-h-I and then T-o-h-e-i. So, that’s sort of a heavy duty book but, yeah, sort of part of the morning ritual that I do and part of my routine has come from that book. So, anyways, one of the things they talk about in that book is when you wake up, first thing in the morning, what a lot of people do is we’re a little groggy right? So, we’ll sit in bed, we’ll lay in bed and next thing you know, 15 minutes, a half hour might have gone by and if you’re sitting in bed, if you’re laying in bed, you’re usually losing energy. In that book, they call it positive Ki. So, Ki is the word for energy, so positive Ki or negative Ki and as we sit there in bed and we’re thinking about what we have to do, we’re thinking about the day, we’re thinking, we start to get overwhelmed. We start to get this negative energy that comes in and we don’t want to get out of bed, right? So, we have our glass of water next to our bed and in the morning when you wake up. So, in this book, they say first thing you do is right when you wake up, you take the covers off of yourself and then you put your feet on the floor like instantly. I got to be honest. The way that I do it is I usually give myself 1 or 2 minutes. So, I’ll wake up and I’ll give myself 1 or 2 minutes to grog around or whatever like lay in bed and have that comfort, have that enjoyment and then I do, I get out of bed and get moving.

[13:23]

So, the most important thing is getting out of that bed. So, get the covers off, get your feet on the floor and just start moving. And now, you’re starting to build a little bit of energy, right, like literally just by getting out of bed. You’re probably groggy. You probably don’t want to get up. You don’t want to get moving but just get yourself out of bed, you know, and walk over, start brushing your teeth. While you’re doing that, you need to get control of your mind and get control of what you’re focused on. So, for me, I focus in on God. So, I’m going to use the word God but what do you call it, universal energy, higher power, positive energy, Ki, Chi, you know, whatever your word is, there’s that energy that we’re tapping into, that love energy, that compassion energy, that universal power energy, that piece that’s bigger than our mind that’s bigger than our ego, right. So, while you know I’m getting up and that’s what I’m doing, I’m aligning myself with that energy. For me, it’s God and I get to the point over the next 3, 4 or 5 minutes of getting into that energy that I’m connected with that and I’m focused in on that, right? How you rise and how you start your day, that energy’s going to stay with you throughout the day.

[15:04]

And again, know that this is going to take some time. So, this isn’t something that you’re going to be perfect at, that you’re going to master on the first day but you have those steps, right, you have the water, you get yourself out of bed like physically get yourself out of bed and then you start getting your mind focused. And, for me, it’s while I’m brushing my teeth, you know, you get up, you go to the bathroom, you brush your teeth. You drink your water and within that 3, 4, 5, maybe 10-minute timeframe, you should have your mind focused on, it can also be called an anchor, for me, it is, it’s that God energy but if that’s not your deal, maybe it’s just positive energy. Maybe it’s having good thoughts, whatever it is for you, you’re getting your mind focused.

[15:56]

So, and then, the next thing that I do is I have what I call my Power hour and I’m going to share some stuff with you here. I’m going to share a variety of things that I use or have used during my Power Hour and it doesn’t have to be an hour, maybe you don’t have time for that. So, that’s what I do right now. But, focus in on the amount of time that you have and pick and choose 1, 3, 5 of these things that I’m going to talk about. Another important piece that I just want to mention before getting into the Power Hour that I do in the morning, I really want you to make a habit of not looking at your cell phone, not looking at any electronics until you’ve gone through and you’ve done your morning, you’ve done your getting up routine and you’ve done your Power Hour routine however long that is. Because, if you’re doing that, you know, we talked about positive Ki and negative Ki a few minutes ago, if you’re doing that there is nothing positive coming out of that. You do not need to check your cell phone first thing in the morning. You do not need to jump on Facebook or Twitter or whatever the new craze is for social media. You don’t need to do it. That is not going to be bringing you power. That’s not going to be part of your good beginning to your morning.

[17:34]

==================================================================================

KC: Okay, before continuing, I want to quickly let you know about our sister podcast, All About Beachbody Coaching. So, partnering with Beachbody, the makers of P90X, Insanity, the 21 Day Fix, Shakeology, you know, the Shaun T/Tony Horton Company. It’s played a huge role for Amy and I in creating the freedom to do what we want, when we want with who we want and not only has it helped us to achieve our goals, it’s how I’ve mentored hundreds of others just like you to achieving their goals and ultimately living the life they love to live. So, if you’d like to learn more about how you can partner with me and be mentored one-on-one by me for free. Check out the All About Beachbody Coaching podcast. Alright, back to today’s episode.

==================================================================================

[18:28]

KC: So, let’s jump in to the Power Hour. What are the different things that I’ve done, do or are doing right now. So, exercise is one of them, kind of a pretty basic one, right? So, any type of exercise, any type of physical movement, I’ll include yoga in there. For me, usually, almost every single day, part of my Power Hour is at least 10 minutes of physical exercise and I would 90% of the time it’s yoga. So, doing some sun salutations, you know, 5, 6, 7 sun salutations first thing in the morning, it just wakens the body up. It enlivens the body. It gets the blood flowing. It helps you to continue to keep the focus of the mind going.

[19:20]

The next thing that I’ll do is meditation. So, a lot of people are confused on what meditation is. They’re confused on how to do meditation. I’m going to give you a super simple way to meditate and just know that meditation is focusing and quieting the mind. With that said, it takes practice and to be able to do it for extended periods of time, you have to start somewhere. Maybe it’s a minute, maybe it’s 2 minutes but here’s all that meditation to me is, especially when you’re just getting started and if you’re using it to start your day off right, you want to focus on a single point or what’s called an anchor. This could be just focusing on feeling your breath going in and out. It could be focusing on a candle in front of you. It could be focusing on the beautiful window that you’re looking out and everything that’s going on out there. The important piece is just to have a single thing to focus on. Here is what’s going to happen. So, meditation isn’t about stopping your mind. That is not going to happen. Meditation’s about focus and the more that you do it, the more that you have the ability to focus your mind.  If you’re just getting started with it, I want you to keep it super simple. All that you want to do, let’s say that we’re focusing in on a candle, right? We’re watching that candle. We’re watching the candle flicker. Our mind is going to go into what happened yesterday, what’s going to happen today. That we need to make the coffee, that we need to do this for the kids, whatever it may be, your mind is going to go elsewhere. All that I want you to do is when you see your mind go elsewhere, bring your focus back to looking at that candle, if that’s what you’re anchor is and that’s it. Your mind wanders, you bring it back. Your mind wanders, you bring it back. Your mind wanders, you bring it back. And, as we practice this over time, maybe we went 20 seconds and our mind didn’t wander, then maybe after, you know, an extended period of time we go a minute or 2 minutes but start with something short, whatever works for you. So again, maybe it’s only 2 or 3 minutes of meditation but that is a really, really simple meditation that you can focus on. You can make it a part of your morning ritual, a part of your morning Power Hour.

[21:57]

A real good book to check out for meditation too is Jon Kabat Zinn. He wrote the book Wherever You Go There You Are. So, it’s a really good beginner meditation book. It gives you a really good overview about what meditation is. So, prayer, prayer is something that I use in my morning ritual every single day and the big piece of prayer is getting into the feeling nature of expectancy, of excitedness, of surrender. Like a lot of people get caught up in prayer and “God help me to have a great day. Help me to do this. Help me to do that.” And, the way that I look at it is keeping it simple, direct and focused and a lot of time for me, in the morning, my prayer is simply “God help me to stay connected with you throughout the day. Help me that if at any time I get disconnected to be aware of it and then help me to reconnect to you.” That’s it, right, because when we’re in a God space, when we’re in that space, we’re coming from the heart where we feel safe, we feel loved, we feel compassion, we feel empowered, we feel supported, we feel guided, right, so we’re connecting in with that. We’re connecting in with that energy. There’s so much that we could go into with prayer but I’ll leave it at that but, prayer.

[23:31]

So breath work, this is one I am all over right now. I’m actually doing a course right now. It’s called the Wim Hof Method, w-i-m h-o-f and it’s a course of breath work and using cold therapy to really just have an empowered mind and take 100% control of your mind. So, check him out. Check out Wim Hof if you’re curious and the Wim Hof Method. His nickname is also the Iceman. But, breath work is something that I’ll do in the morning. And again, I’m throwing a ton at you, pick a couple of these to start with. Maybe even just one to start with.

[24:19]

The next thing is Visualization. So, often times I’ll spend 5 minutes in my Power Hour and I’ll visualize how I want the day to go. I’ll visualize the type of energy that I want to walk with. I’ll visualize, you know, depending on what you have going on for your day. So, if I have a day that I know I have a 3 or 4-hour meeting, I’ll spend time visualizing how I want that meeting to go, what type of energy I want to bring into that meeting, how I want the outcome to happened so just really visualizing your day. While I’m talking about this, another really good book to check out that this is specifically, it’s called The Miracle Morning. Hal Elrod is the author, H-a-l E-l-r-o-d. So, awesome book, it’s a very simple book, very basic book but he talks about a few different things that he uses for starting off his days. He dives deeper into visualization and the different visualization techniques that you can use. So, check out that book if you want. I know that I’m throwing a ton of books at you. So again, I’m just giving you the whole gamut, use what you want out of it. Start small.

[25:48]

The next thing is planning your day. So, I highly suggest that you have a journal and one of the things that I do in my journal is during my Power Hour, I will plan out what are the couple of things that I want to focus on and just a quick not here with the planning of the day, that’s usually the last thing that I’ll do during my Power Hour or the second to last thing. I’m going to give you, I got a little surprise for you that I do for the last thing. I want my mind to be a little quieter. I want to be more awake so in the beginning, it’s usually starting off with yoga or meditation and then we move through some other things. But, the last thing I usually do is planning out the day. And, one note I’ll make for planning out the day, just try to keep it as simple as possible. Don’t make it overwhelming. Don’t make it complicated. A lot of times we plan out more than we’re actually capable of doing and then we wind up getting nothing done. Keep it simple, maybe 3 things at most that you’re focusing on throughout the day.

[26:58]

Alright, the next thing is reading. So, with this, it’s not leisure reading, it’s reading something that is going to stimulate your mind, reading some type of personal development book. So, tons and tons and tons of books I could recommend on that. I’m not going to go into it on this episode but reading positive, affirming good stuff for your mind and then also writing or journaling. So, one of the beautiful things about journaling and my favorite journal is, hopefully I pronounce this correctly, the Moleskine Journal. So, they’re these black journals and they’re just awesome. They’re a little bit expensive. I think it’s like 20 bucks a journal. I have mine right in front of me with the notes for this call on it. But, those are, I love the Moleskine Journals. They’re really solid. They don’t fall apart and you want to invest right. If you’re spending so much time in it, you want to invest in a journal. But, that power of a journal, the power of journaling, so I use my journal as a daily planner, as a journal, I sort of use it for everything. It goes with me wherever I go and it’s not a calendar or anything like that. It’s just lined paper.

[28:20]

But, the power of journaling and what I mean by journaling is writing down your thoughts, writing down your emotions, writing down your feelings, writing down what’s going on. If we have positive emotions, positive feelings, journaling actually empowers those thoughts. So, let’s say we just had a great meditation. We feel amazing. We had these insights and we’re writing about them. Journaling actually empowers those thoughts. So, it empowers, it strengthens positive thoughts. Here’s the amazing thing about journaling, negative thoughts, when we journal about them, lose their power when we journal. Amazing right? So, positive thoughts become better, negative thoughts lose their power, just by writing them out. So, highly recommend adding journaling or writing to your morning routine and here’s one other thing. I’ll throw this out there. So again, part of the Wim Hof Method that I’m focusing on, part of it’s breath work and the other part is cold water therapy. I actually now have built up to just doing cold showers. So, whenever I take a show, I don’t use anything but cold water. Ahhh, sounds crazy, right? To me, it was crazy and I had tried this a bunch of different times and it never worked for me.  I hated it. And then, I went through and I did this called the Wim Hof Method and now, let me rephrase that, I made it like halfway through but I didn’t continue with it because I didn’t have a support system. So, now I’m going through with 3 other guys. We’re all doing it 100% and I am enjoying cold showers in the morning. So, I told you I was going to give you everything that I’m doing.

[30:10]

So, that’s sort of it. That is my morning routine. What I recommend for you is focus in, if you don’t have a morning routine yet, get that getting up part down path, so water next to the bed, getting up within 1 to 2 minutes from waking, like not sitting there grogging around and then getting your mind focused on something good, something positive, right? So, that ‘s your morning routine. Drink that water, get out of bed, get your mind focused. And then, I do a Power Hour. If you’ve never done this before, maybe just start with 10 minutes. If you have an hour, start with an hour, right? Like, this is all amazing, amazing stuff that you can start with. So, start your day off that way. Pick 1 or 2 or 3 things. Sometimes I’ll do just one of them. Sometimes, I’ll so 5 of them. For example, this morning, I did a half hour of the breathing exercises in that Wim Hof Method and then after that I did maybe like 5 minutes of journaling, 5 minutes of planning out my day then went downstairs, took a cold shower, So, it’s probably about 45 minutes but I am completely focused. I know what I’m doing for the day and the hard work of the day is done. Like, it really is because now I am ready for the day to start and I’m going to sandwich my day, so I had a good beginning and you really have to understand this part, how you that energy is so much easier to carry on. So, if you wake up in the morning, you jump on Facebook, you’re scrolling around, you’re numbing out then the kids wake up. Now, you’re running around trying to get the kids. You don’t have positive energy. You don’t have life force going into the day. And, to gain that, to be able to have a good day, a positive day, you have to work so much harder. But, if you start it correctly, it’s almost like the domino effect right? Like, if we have that good start, all the other pieces to the day are going to fall into place. So, that is the start of the day.

[32:25]

Let’s get into winding down the day. And, really winding down the day, I go into what I call my Power Down Hour. So, during the Power Down Hour, here is one of the most important things, no electronics. So, for the last hour of your day, if you’re sitting there watching TV, if you’re sitting there o your cell phone, your mind is stimulated and even though, like a lot of times that’s going to relax us, that’s cool. But, what I would recommend is for the last hour and again, maybe you can’t, maybe you’re so, like you’re addicted to that TV or addicted to that phone. Maybe it’s only 15 minutes for you. What I do is for the last hour, no electronic whatsoever and the things that I do for that last hour, let me just say, the reason for no electronics is because they’re stimulants. So, they’re stimulating your mind. They’re keeping you going.

[33:29]

There’re really 3 things that I do for powering down and it’s light reading, and what by mean by light reading, don’t read your self-improvement books at night because they’re going to get your mind really thinking, like we want our mind to slow down. We want our body to slow down. We want to get into that restful state so I’ll read lighter stuff. And, the other thing that I do with that is I’ll also do some writing, like maybe a little bit of writing how the day went. A third thing that I often do is kind of just sitting in a rocking chair, like one of the most relaxing things, thing that’s are going to calm you down, thing that’s going to relax you is just sitting. Like, sitting and rocking and having that alone time and may be talking with a friend, talking with a spouse, yes, so you’re starting to slow down. You’re starting to wind your mind down. You’re starting to wind your body down and wind your system down. And then, I go into prayer and the prayer is always about gratitude. So, I don’t ever want to focus on what I could have done different, what didn’t work during the day. I want to focus on picking out all of the good things that happened in that day. So, I’m grateful that I had this day to live. I’m grateful for my 3 healthy children, grateful for my wife, grateful that I have the ability and guidance to be able to have these morning and evening rituals, grateful for the conversations that I had. I’m grateful for the trees and the flowers. And, having that gratitude just puts you, it shifts your energy. It puts sort of that end cap on to the day. And, here’s the most important piece, when you end your day this way, you’re tuning yourself back into a certain frequency, right, and gratitude turns us into that frequency. We end our day, we go into bed and even if we’re most likely going to sleep relaxed when we’re doing this and even if we don’t have the best night’s sleep, we’re still ending the day with those positive thoughts, positive emotions. Those carry with us through the night and in the morning, we’re going to wake up and our energy’s going to be better. Versus, we watched horror movie and the go to bed, versus sitting on Facebook and falling asleep with your phone, you know, so many, I’ve heard these things of people, like they have their Facebook, their phone in their bed and you’re looking at that and that’s how you fall asleep and then you wake up in the morning and you pick up that phone and you look at the Facebook like you’re losing all your power when you do that.

So, I just went through, I gave you my routine for good beginnings and good endings and we really dove into doing it for the day. We have a sheet set up for you. We also have the show notes set up for you. The easiest way to get that is send a text message to 38470 and within that text message, within the body, just type in the word GOOD and what we’ll do is we’ll get you that sheet right in your e-mail. And, the reason I like doing it that way is because so many times I’m listening to a podcast, right and I’m listening to the podcast. I’m going through it and I’m like “Oh, that’s a good point. That’s a god point. I got to check out that website when I get home. I want to write all these stuff down.” And then, I forget. Press pause, send that quick text message and then I’m going to get you connected. Get this information over to you so you don’t forget. Also, if you are a person that’s not going to forget, just jump over to our website. The website is KeithCallahan.com/episode12. Alright, guys, I appreciate you. I’m grateful. I’m grateful for the honor to be able to speak on this platform, really, really enjoyed today. This is stuff that changed my and start slow. So, maybe pick up 1 or 2 things and, yeah, I’d love to hear a little bit more about it and how it is going for you, what’s working, what’s not working, what things you’ve used in the past. So, hit me up, send me a message on Facebook, you know how to get in touch. Have a beautiful day and we’ll talk to you next time.
